I follow the grep mailing list and egrep is deprecated in favor of grep
-E. Same for fgrep and grep -F.
See the grep man page:
In addition, the variant programs egrep and fgrep are the same as grep
-E and grep -F, respectively. These variants are deprecated, but
are provided for backward compatibility.
